Cancun Area activities
If you're into watersports, then Mexico has plenty to offer. The coastal resorts all cater for enthusiasts and beginners. Snorkeling, wind- and kitesurfing, parasailing and sailing are all available. For a different underwater experience visit the 'cenotes' or caves, lying just off the highway between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. They're favorites with divers, snorkelers, and swimmers.
Swimming with dolphins
There are a number of marine parks and resort-based companies that offer the rare chance to swim and interact with dolphins.
Combine sightseeing with a round of golf. Mayan ruins can be seen on some of the scenic courses centred around the resorts.
